A day stay at the Natural Gas Town

My last stop before heading back to Miri was at Bintulu. A small coastal town in terms of human population and also infrastructure developments, however small is powerful. Bintulu is currently known as the world’s largest liquefied natural gas production facility on a single site, with an annual production of 23 million tonnes.

I'm flying along the coastal area

So shall I call Bintulu town as the Natural Gas town? ;p

We were been served with light refreshment while boarding the morning flight from the Cat City to Bintulu which is something new to me. Usually MASWings only served packet drink.

Taraaaa..here's what's inside the box

Once we landed safely at the airport, we grabbed a taxi and checked in at Parkcity Beverly Hotel and were rushing to get ourselves ready for our presentation.

Actually I stayed at one of those room no. ;p

Boarding on a Fokker50 that carries flight number MH3440, I noticed something awkward about it. As I’m about to sit on my seat, I saw this. It was toilet paper not tissue (I kid you not) was placed in order along the ‘what-ever you may call it’ which located above your head.

Panggilan pulang ke panggilan pulau ni? ;p

 Can you see the toilet paper been placed nicely?

It did give me the spooky and un-safe feeling throughout the flight whether it’s going to be a safe journey home for me. The imagination even became wild when there are couples of times; I felt I’m on a roller coaster due to few rounds of turbulence in the air.

To the point my heart was pumping really hard and said my prayer in silence while holding my hands really tight…‘Dear God, I don’t want to die young. I still need to take care of my loved one and I’m not ready to die yet. I will never board a plane with toilet paper above my seat anymore. Damn it toilet paper, it’s all your fault!!’.

Amazingly, the roller coaster ride stops. Later, I had a smooth flight, landed safely at Miri airport. I kid you not. To be able to share this experience of mine here is something to cherish as I still have the opportunity to do so unless others doesn’t. It may sound humorous and silly to you but I bet you will agree with me too if you ever encountered such moment.

What a roller coaster ride it was for me and life is not short but it’s really short. Praise the Lord that I’m still kicking today and thank you also Lord for putting me going through the recession period twice in my life.

ps – i’m going to the natural gas town again next week and i hope i don’t board the same freaking plane.

    Perhaps the toilet paper was supposed to stop rattling of the overhead compartments.

    People with older cars should be familiar with such “fix-it”s…. :p
